about

When the COVID-19 pandemic forced First the Winter to delay their return to F5 Soundhouse recording studio, they decided to record and release this emotional track, recorded live and in a single take at their home.

lyrics

Yeah the hardest part of living

Is living with yourself

Missing you tonight, smoking alone as the rain falls down

Under the streetlight and I'm chilled to the bone

And I wish you were here

But you're hiding far away, half the world around

And that thought brings me peace, cuz now you're safe and sound

Away from me, and the mess that I made

Yeah the saddest thing of all

Is seeing how far I've fallen from what I used to be

Groping through the dark

I'm just searching for a part of a better me

Yeah the hardest part of living

Is living with yourself

Brick by brick, you tore my wall down

Then you left me alone, looking all around

Naked and confused, and wondering why

And now you’ve got the stones for reaching out again

But my guards stand firm to remind you of your sins

And I hate you to death

To death

Yeah the saddest thing of all

Is seeing how far you've fallen from what you used to be

Groping through the dark

Oh, I'm searching for a part of a better me

Yeah the hardest part of living, oh the hardest part of living

The hardest part of living, yeah the hardest part of living

Is living with yourself
